I am 52 years old, a native of Lynden and the 4th generation of my family in Whatcom County. Married 24 years to my wife Linda, we have 3 Daughters; Janelle, Jaylene (& husband Stephen Bowerman) and Julie. Because I have lived in Lynden and Whatcom County my whole life, you can be assured of my knowledge of and commitment to the area.


I currently hold the following designations: CRS - Certified Residential Specialist; e-PRO - Certified Electronic Internet Specialist; GRI - Graduate of REALTORS Institute; and SRES - Seniors Real Estate Specialist. A licensed Associate Broker in Washington State since 1981, I am an: Active member of the National Association of REALTORS; Active member of the Washington Association of REALTORS; Active member of the Whatcom Association of REALTORS; Active member of the REALTORS National Marketing Institute; Active member of the Washington CRS Chapter; Active member of the Northwest Multiple Listing Association and an Active member of the Commercial Brokers Association.


My real estate history is as follows: 2006 - Windermere Real Estate; 1988 - 2006 Snapper Shuler Kenner Inc.: 1981 - 1984 Century 21 Regal Properties Inc.: 1977 - 1981 Regal Properties Inc.: An effective Real Estate agent is tuned to customer's needs and desires. With over 25 years as a real estate agent, I have continually increased my knowledge of the real estate business and what customers need and continue to strive to meet your needs. Designated as an Associate Broker, Graduate of the Realtors Institute, Certified e-PRO and a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) I have undergone extensive training. This knowledge combined with HUNDREDS of transactions gives you the confidence in considering me "your" RealtorŪ. Recently I received the SRES designation, which means for "senior" buyers, I have increased knowledge in taxes, mortgage and moving for those over 50 years of age. The continuing service, (or what's in it for you) is the most important aspect of what any real estate agent can offer. I always strive to be in front of and anticipating the needs of my customers. I am very accessible and use my cell phone, email and web site to keep in constant communication.
